A combo image shows Quaden Bayles crying after a bullying incident at school.
Quaden Bayles, the 9-year-old Australian boy with dwarfism who’s video went viral after being bullied at school, has decided to donate the money raised for him to go to Disneyland. The figure amounts to around $475,000.
The clip of the boy showed him crying and repeatedly saying he wanted to die after being bullied.
"Give me a knife I want to kill myself. I just want to die right now." Quaden Bayles wails in the viral video."
The video was watched millions of times and prompted the comedian to start a GoFundMe page that eventually raised almost $475,000.
"Which kid wouldn't want to go to Disneyland, especially if you have lived Quaden's life. To escape to anywhere that is fun that doesn't remind him of his day to day challenges," she said.
"But my sister said you know what, let's get back to the real issue. This little fella has been bullied. How many suicides, black or white, in our society have happened due to bullying."
"We want the money to go to community organisations that really need it. They know what the money should be spent on, so as much as we want to go to Disneyland, I think our community would far off benefit from that."
Australian actor Hugh Jackman and NBA player Enes Kanter were among the hundreds of thousands posting support for Bayles.
